For the apple pie pancakes (Vegan and gluten-free option)
Premix your spices into your applesauce. Combine all the ingredients in a blender. Blend until smooth. Alternatively, use a large mixing bowl. Start with the dry ingredients, before adding in the wet ones. Mix until fully combined.
Let the batter sit for at least 5 minutes, for the mixture to thicken.
Preheat a nonstick frying pan over medium heat. Once the pan is hot, pour the batter in the pan, using a 1/4 measuring cup as a scoop. Cook for 1-2 minutes or until golden on the edges and a spatula can easily flip it. Cook for another 1-2 minutes, or until thick, fluffy and crispy.
Repeat until all the batter is used up. If possible, cover the pan when cooking. Serve up or allow to cool and freeze individual portions.
For the paleo and keto option
In a high-speed blender, add all your ingredients and blend until fully combined and a thick batter remains.
Allow the batter to rest for 5-10 minutes, allowing the coconut flour to thicken. If the batter is too thick, continue to add milk of choice.
Preheat a greased/oiled pan over low-medium heat. Pour scant 1/4 cup portions of batter on the hot pan. Cover the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes, until bubbles form on the edges and flip. Continue cooking until all the batter is used up.
Apple Pie compete (optional)
Stovetop or microwave, heat up 1 chopped apple in a layer of water and apple pie spice until soft and tender. Sprinkle with extra cinnamon and top your pancakes with them.
Healthy Fluffy Flourless Apple Pie Pancakes can be batch cooked and leftovers can be refrigerated or frozen.
